Oscar Schindler Violent Resistance
1,158 wordsThere is no doubt that pleasure is good. Whether the pleasure is emotional or physical; whether we get this pleasure through taste, touch, sight, scent, or hearing; it makes no difference. Pleasure is always enjoyable. In fact the words pleasure and good are often times interchangeable. After seeing a movie I liked, I may tell someone that the film was pleasurable or that it was good. Both descriptions have a positive connotation. But while pleasure is undoubtedly good, it is not the highest goo...

Schindler Factory Jews Film
1,181 wordsSchindler's List is a movie that though I had heard much about, I had never seen.

I can remember when I was in 8 th grade hearing an announcement over the loudspeaker that all of the seniors had to bring in their permission slips so that they would be allowed to watch the film in the auditorium the following week.

John Paul Ii 19 Th Century
1,916 wordsOVER THE past four decades, the attitude of the Catholic Church toward Judaism and the Jews has undergone a sea change. On the theological level, the decisive event was the Second Vatican Council, which in 1965 finally lifted the collective charge of deicide against the Jewish people, reversing the longstanding Augustinian view that the Jews would eternally bear the mark of Cain. But of no less importance has been the current Pope's personal commitment to reconciliation. Since his election in 19...

Throughout time Gypsies have suffered disproportionately from poverty, unemployment, interethnic violence, discrimination, illiteracy, and disease (Lewy 1).

Too many of us had family members who barely escaped the atrocities that were to occur. Too many of us lost family members to the dreams of a genius and a madman. This mov...
